1853 Maundy set - This is one of the rarer dates in the Victorian Maundy series.
This is partly due to the threepence being extremely rare in any grade and especially
so in a choice grade. The difference between a Maundy and a currency 3d of this period is
that they are extremely difficult to tell apart ! So silver 3d collectors will on occasions
buy the Maundy set if a 3d alone is not available.
4d - EF Very slight scuffing in the field. Pale goldish tone
3d - EF Dark tone (Extremely difficult date 3d to find)
2d - VF+ Greyish tone
1d - EF+ Paleish green tone
